Kay Adams Farabee Rash

Obituary Notice

Kay Adams Farabee Rash, age 60, of Little Rock, died July 10, 2005. She was born in Little Rock, daughter of Jane Adams Farabee on March 15, 1945. She graduated from Hall High and went on to attend The University of Central Arkansas. Kay worked in several Governmental Offices before retiring from the Corps of Engineers after 30 years of service. She was a Member of First Church of Christ Scientist and gained much from it's support.

Kay was preceded in death by her grandmother, Lottie Adams; her uncles, Skipwith Adams and Reaves Adams; and cousin, Tommy Adams. She is survived by her mother, Jane Adams Farabee; her daughter, Ashley Michelle Galloway; grand daughter, Brenna Elizabeth Galloway; aunt, Mildred Adams; cousin, Jane Trainham; and cousin-in-law, Betty Adams.

Kay had a big and generous heart for friends, acquaintances and for life. She saw and took care of the needs of others before they expressed that need. After meeting someone, she noticed the good in them and had something complimentary to say. Mrs. Rash was true Southern Lady, the epitome of gracious charm. She handled many problems, sometimes to the detriment of her own health. Finally, her big heart ceased to function.

A Celebration of Kay's Life will be held in the Chapel of Ruebel Funeral Home, on Thursday, July 14, 2005 at 10:00 AM with Frances Reichert as Reader. Burial will be at Mount Holly Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorials to the First Church of Christ Scientist, 10720 North Rodney Parham, Little Rock, AR, 72212 or to the Pulaski County Humane Society. www.ruebelfuneralhome.com

  • I will always remember Kay as one who willingly and gladly helped any and all who worked with her at the Corps, and who (almost) always had a smile for her work mates, from the Colonels to the least of us. It was a pleasure to meet her once again this spring on top of Mount Nebo. Kay will be missed by many.

  • Joan and I worked with Kay for a number of years at the Corps of Engineers here in Little Rock, and she was always a delight to be around. Her quick smile and ready wit are the things I will remember most about Kay. She even laughed at some of my jokes. She will be sorely missed by friends and family alike.
